Father loses his life in a confrontation with the school bus driver his daughter accused of assaulting her
Frederick Olorunfemi, 51, sadly lost his life in a confrontation with the bus driver ofhis daughter's school after she accused him of sexually assaulting her.
The 7-year-old Luyol School student, who will turn 8 in May, reportedly told her mother about the molestation event.
On February 1st, she said that the driver drove her to his house after dropping off the other students at their destinations in order to get to know her better.
According to the driver, Mr. Femi was pushed before he fell and was taken to a neighboring hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
When Olorunfemi learned this, he and his daughter stormed the school to confront the driver, and a fierce fight ensued between them.
Mrs. Mabel Olorunfemi, the deceased man's wife, told Vanguard, "Last Wednesday, my daughter came home from school and told me that after everyone on her school bus had been dropped off at their homes, he took her to his house, told her to lift her school uniform and sit on his lap to kiss him, and was calling her his wife.
I waited till my husband got home because he doesn't usually come home before telling him everything she had told me.
When he heard, he became enraged and took up the phone to call the school's director. He told him that he would go to the police station to report everything, but the owner of the school calmed him down and told him to come to class the following day, which was Tuesday, the seventh.
My daughter and I went after him there. The bus driver who goes by the name of Jacob was also present at the owner's office. The owner questioned the driver about why he brought the school bus back so late on that fatal day after asking Sarah to recount all that had happened. The driver replied that he had to drop something off after picking up the students.
My husband punched him out of rage, and after that, he hit my husband in the neck, which sparked a fight right there in the office. My husband was really irate while holding the driver, which caused the driver to push as everyone tried to separate them. My husband stumbled and lost consciousness. Prior to our arrival at the hospital.
The bus driver has not yet been apprehended since he is on the run, according to SP Benjamin Hundeyin, a spokesman for the Lagos State Police, who confirmed the event.
